When I was younger my brothers' nicknamed me 'Tater', claiming that I loved tater tots and that's why my cheeks were chubby. Not that I was against loving tater tots, but it just wasn't true...they weren't my thing. My cheeks weren't even that chubby either.
The truth was that they randomly saw the nickname on tv, tried calling me tater once, saw it got under my skin and therefore it stuck. That's what older brothers are supposed to do, right? Tease.
Times have changed. No my brothers have not stopped teasingme, but after eating these Truffle Oil Tater Tots, I may have rightfully earned the nickname. So tasty! When I was in LA for work we ate dinner at the O Hotel Restaurant and I solely ordered the burger so I could get these truffle tots on the side. Great decision. I mean truffle oil on any sort of potato is pretty awesome.
So why not make them at home with some frozen tots? Don't ask questions, just do it!
